Aimlessly my gaze wanders to the dark Across shadowed faces of a dozen races Expressions so mocking, words abusing and shocking How can I shut them up? How can I make them go away? The fucking voices in my mind! How do I fucking leave them behind?! I can't take it anymore! ---------------- So different yet still the same On the inside, unlike the others They can't see, but still they sense it They still hate you, they're blind to the most visible Part of you, they're blind to your heart They can't see it But they still break it. ---- Everything looks easy in hindsight You can't cure what has already rotted You can't clean blood, already clotted You can't sell it, you already bought it You can't fix something irreparably broken Learn from mistakes, that's what it takes On with your life, everything looks easy in hindsight. ------- Dark embrace This is me This is what I smile like This is what I smell like This is what I feel like Don't you love me? I can't breathe Unless you hold me tight Hold me tight, I'm smothering So hold me tight, I still can't breathe. ---------- You ask me why I never really smile ever And I tell you that I'm gonna give you three guesses But you're only gonna need one It's you, yeah, it's you You drag me down like a rusty anchor To the bottom of a sea of depression Does that impress you, or depress you? Well it should, yeah it should Why don't you help me up, please? We can sail to calmer waters I will smile with every mile.
